You bring up some good points. I chose the ///M5. It it serves me better for the activities and driving I do. Yes, the 3 will hit the corners faster but the ///M5 will devour most all other cars on the highway. That's fun. Most of all the ///M5 offers a sophistication that will met by only a few other auto's. The 3 is not one of them.
There is maintenance to do, but that is the price for the wonderful power and sound the engine produces. If you are going to use your car, get the ///M5. If you are going to race your car, get the 3.
